CACI facials – everything you need to know
CACI facials are a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that have been known to deliver dramatic results without the need for surgical interventions. Dubbed the ‘non-surgical facelift’, celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Linda Evangelista are huge fans – whilst some have even bought their own machine for use at home. Every now and again a beauty hack will appear and become the new ‘It’ trend – which often disappears as quickly as it became popular. CACI facials however have been around for over 20 years and now the red-carpet secret is more accessible than ever. With its popularity on the rise, we thought we’d find out a little more about the treatment so you can judge for yourselves.
What does CACI mean?
CACI stands for Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument… don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it sounds! It’s a micro current machine that uses specific waveforms and ultra-low frequencies to transmit tiny electrical signals to boost muscle tone and skin tissue. It works in harmony with the body’s own bio-electrical field to help improve skin tone, texture and face shape.
What is a CACI facial?
The facial itself is an LED light therapy where warm, coloured light penetrates deep into the skin. Microcurrent facial toning is then combined with the light therapy to regenerate tissue and help repair collagen. The CACI facial can be described as an MOT for your face thanks to lymphatic drainage, peeling, cleansing and toning and it also works to banish deep lines, giving you the appearance of younger looking skin. Clever, right?
How many CACI facials are available?
All CACI facials are high-tech and made to suit all skin types. Regis therapists offer 7 different facial treatments:
Non-Surgical Face Lift – boasts all the original innovative technology linked to what has become known as the Non-Surgical Face Lift.
Wrinkle Revolution – Amino-Lift Peptide Complex is applied to the specific areas of concern. CACI’S Wrinkle comb handset is then used to precisely exfoliate lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth areas.
Hydratone – combines active microcurrent rollers with a unique, electrically conductive silicone gel mask that has been infused with powerful hydrating properties. The rollers gently massage the face causing the mask to become electrically charged so that the whole face is bathed with rejuvenating energy.
Blemish Fix – combines anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory red and blue LED light therapy, to help heal the skin and trigger tissue repair.
Ultimate Anti-Ageing Facial – a combination of microdermabrasion, microcurrent and red and blue light therapy. Includes a gentle pinching action to bring blood to the surface of the skin and promote fullness. Finished with the CACI mask which is cooling and soothing.
Double Chin Lift – uses Quad Probes specifically developed to target the muscles around the jaw line. These Probes emit tiny electrical impulses to lift, firm and redefine facial contours.
Body Treatment – Faradic technology uses a higher intensity output than microcurrent stimulation and aids the lymphatic system by stirring up any unwanted fats and training toxins to keep away from areas prone to blockages.
What do I need to know before and after a CACI facial?
Prior to your CACI facial you will receive a consultation to establish the results you want and the possible outcomes with your chosen treatment.
The treatment itself lasts around 90 minutes, depending on your chosen facial and feels warm and energising.
To achieve optimum results, it is recommended you have a course of 15 treatments followed by monthly maintenance sessions.
After you have received your CACI facial our therapists will advise you on aftercare products to use at home. These will help prolong the facial and enhance the effects.
